Hi, my name is Sean and I am 12 years old. I am doing a science fair project on shrimp genetics and my problem statement is: How does the color of adult shrimp affect the color of the baby shrimp. However due to limited time I cannot do the experiment how I wanted to (get a red and orange shrimp and try to crossbreed them) so instead I need to set up a probability experiment. I know that when the red and orange neocaridina heteropoda cross the babies will be brown or wild colored no matter what but if the red cherry shrimp is a double recessive and the pumpkin shrimp is a double recessive, why does the color go back to the wild color when they cross instead of being just red or orange?
How do the babies of the red and orange shrimp still contain the wild gene and how could I make this an experiment?
